Microchipping

It’s the law!
Microchip your cat or dog

On 1st July 2009, the Queensland Government introduced new animal management legislation to encourage responsible pet ownership; effectively manage cats and dogs; and enhance community safety.

There are four key components in the new legislation:

  • Compulsory registration of cats and dogs, except rural working dogs
  • Compulsory microchipping of young cats and dogs or when transferring ownership of cats and dogs
  • Compulsory tattooing for voluntarily desexed cats and dogs
  • State-wide conditions for keeping dangerous, menacing or restricted dogs                                                 

Implanting a microchip in your cat or dog is compulsory in 3 cases:

  • If your cat or dog is younger than 12 weeks when the legislation commences
  • If the ownership of the cat or dog changes after the legislation commences
  • If a dog is a regulated dog i.e. a restricted dog or declared a dangerous or menacing dog
